The Toledo Ohio saga continues with Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, which is VERY pretty and somewhat old, at least in an American kind of way.

You don't usually see these Spanish style churches in the East. It's beautiful.

isn't it stunning? I was surprised as well. And no one else was around, we had this beautiful place all to ourselves :)

I went to the church website and tried the virtual tour link to find information about the angels with their shields but didn't find any - I can see the spear, nails, crown, whip, and what looks like other tools and then the marble column. Not sure about the significance of the column. Love the church.

I know, right? And we had this place all to ourselves, the grounds keeper even turned on the lights just for us :)

Impressive! :)
Although it also has a bit of that "Vegas goes Europe" vibe, that sometimes makes me giggle.

Thanks for posting these.

You are more than welcome and yeah, I know what you mean, a LOT of ornamentation, but all authentic to its time, I imagine. You have to admit though, those six little angels are pretty cute, at least I think so :D

Cathedral
I have never before heard of the Cathedral of Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary which is obviously an omission on my part. Gorgeous. And I do love the angels. FanSee

Re: Cathedral
Obviously an omission on your part and mine as well. It is thankfully mostly just called Rosary Cathedral. And seriously, aren't those angels just the cutest guys!??! *Le sigh*

Glad you enjoyed. And I agree, I love seeing old churches also especially when, like this one, they are all quiet and peaceful, no one else was around but us.

The photos are wonderful. Wish I could get something like that with my point and shoot.

The cathedral is too busy for me when I lightened the shadows. I imagine it's gorgeous, though.

In person.

Love the reflections.
